If you struggle with fatigue, brain fog, or sleep apnea, or if you have a child who struggles with sleep disturbances or snoring, listen to this episode with Dr. Brian Hockel about oral airway health, sleep, breathing, and head posture. 

For children, early problems with tongue, teeth and jaw positioning can impact physical, mental and emotional growth. But noticing early signs and taking steps to correct any oral airway issues can make a huge difference. And for adults, addressing oral airway health with simple, at home exercises (myofunctional therapy) can help to improve breathing, sleep, energy levels, and more.

Hear about my personal journey through sleep medicine, and some of the unfortunate issues I encountered when I started investigating sleep optimization. I hope this serves as a helpful example of how quickly patients can be subjected to expensive testing, invasive treatments, and unnecessary fear when an evidence-based hierarchy isn’t in place. In addition to my story, I’m sharing a number of tips and insights for those who do struggle with sleep issues and/or symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, or mood disturbances.

Taking a sauna has long been a relaxing therapeutic modality in the spa, fitness and wellness communities, but did you know that sauna therapy offers important health benefits as well?

On today’s podcast, I speak with Dr. Todd Maderis, ND, about the connection between Lyme disease and the gut. Abdominal pain, constipation, and discomfort are among the symptoms of Lyme that can complicate treatment for an already complicated disease. “Probably two-thirds of my patients that do walk in the door that either have a Lyme diagnosis or suspect they have Lyme, they're having GI symptoms,” says Dr. Maderis.
We also discuss other issues - including mold and allergens - that can factor into Lyme treatment, and how to address them. https://drruscio.com/lyme-disease-and-your-gut
